. . . was a very eye-opening experience. This is Chris Granger from the Westbank of New Orleans. It was my professional pleasure to take him on a photo shoot for Southern Breeze Magazine, a Gulf Coast quarterly. His photos will be seen in the summer issue, accompanying an article about this area written by my colleague, Deb Burst.
It brings me a deep sense of pride when I share the beauty of the Mauvais Bois Swamp with a newcomer–especially one with such an eye for the hidden details.
While we listened to the sounds of the swamp, Chris took photos from all angles, seeing something different every time, no doubt.
I decided to pull my camera out and see what he might be seeing through his lenses.
Mind if I share a couple of my favorites?
It was a great experience being with Chris. He is about the 20th photographer I’ve had on my boat, and he has no idea how much he taught me.
Thank you, Chris. I hope the cover shot and the inside spread get this disappearing place of great beauty the attention it deserves.
